Does heading to the doctor's office conjure up bad feelings of having to get weighed on a scale -- particularly if you've recently gone through a significant change, like having just had a baby? You're not alone, that's for sure. Society has put far too much weight on weight -- especially when it comes to women and moms.

"This scale will only tell you the numerical value of your gravitational pull," a sign by the scale said, according to a post by Mariah Kaitlyn Herrera, or @mariahkaitlynherrera. "It will not tell you how beautiful you are, how much your friends and family love you, or how amazing you are!" 

The very true message is signed by "your nurse."

TL;DR: Every doctor's office should follow this nurse's lead!
